The Dazzle of Light
We've had a few pleasant days where the humidity was down and it felt good to be outside. It's been a little while since I went on a photo walk, so I was just aching for the therapy of shooting just for me.
I love the light at the end of the day and I think this excerpt from Walt Whitman's poetry fitting "You must habit yourself to the dazzle of the light and of every moment of your life."
One of my favorite places near home is Shaw Nature Reserve. It doesn't matter how many times I visit, or what season, I always find beautiful things. This time, the last rays of sunshine were catching my eye around every corner.
On Sunday evening, I was visiting a friend who just happens to live on a beautiful farm with heavenly views. As the sun was setting on a perfect day, I took a little walk around the property to capture the last rays of sun.
And sometimes, everything aligns perfectly. The rays from the setting sun lit up this Sunset Motel sign. The Sunset Motel is located along Old Route 66 near Villa Ridge, MO. Unfortunately, the neon lights were not all working, but the setting sun added just enough of a glimmer to make it shine.
I hope you are as dazzled by the light as I am. If you like my photos, please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
'Til next time,
